The Sworn Sword

sworn swordThis is the second installment in George R. R. Martin’s Dunk and Egg trilogy, exploring the world of the seven kingdoms 100 years before the events of A Game of Thrones.

This time, Ser Duncan he Tall has pledged his sword to Ser Eustace Osfrey, Lord of Standfast, and we find him at the beginning of the story delivering wine to the small castle with his squire Egg – a minor Targaryen prince who is destined to become King Aegon the Unlikely much later.

What seems like a dull appointment becomes action packed when a neighbour, a mysterious and beautiful woman known as the Red Widow, annexes Standfast’s water supply. Dunk must find a way to reconcile the two families, protect himself and Egg without revealing Egg’s secret.

This continues to be a moderately entertaining series for fans only.
